Notes/Commercial Description:
Black & Wild is the antithesis of most American Wild Ales. The robust nature of the intense acidity, bold sour cherries and chocolaty malt is layered with the deep notes of vanilla, spicy charred oak and rich caramels from the used bourbon barrels in which this beer matured for more than a year.

A- Pours a murky dark brown/reddish color with a small tan head that recedes to a collar leaving some lacing.

S- The aroma is bursting with dark tart cherries, sweet malt, lacto sourness, brett funk, and oak! Super rich and complex, yet amazingly balanced and inviting!

T- Wow! This is just incredibly crafted! Bright sour cherry notes followed by tons of oak, sweet malts, even some chocolate. Mostly it's just tons of sourness, some lactic, some fruity. Despite the warhead sourness this is incredibly drinkable!

M- The mouth feel is medium, well carbed, with a nice dry finish.

O- This is just a perfect example of a dark sour! Amazingly well done again by Side Project!
